comment Would whole brain emulation be compatible with Judaism?
No reason you couldn't stimulate it equivalently for however complex a situation you want in order for the experiment to be conclusive.

This answer is basically an oversimplification of quantum physics, free will, and Jewish thought. Granted the question didn't deserve anything better, but doesn't make it all that impressive.

comment Can someone who possibly already did a mitzva cover another such person with the b'racha?
@AvrohomYitzchok How could neither be obligated??? Both are unsure if obligated. How come you can change the initial assumptions, but he can't?

Adderabba. We hold you need a s'fek s'feka as well, just the first safek is very easy to come by. Meaning if you have some other safek, it's very easy to find a friend to be your other safek.

comment “Masekhtot Banayikh”: The Origins of an Expression
Note that the word in the Drasha is probably בניך with a Kamatz Katan on the bet not בוניך with a Cholom.

The chazzan could just predesignate a congregant for the chazzan to motzi in the bracha (like יצא מוציא) so that the chazzan can say the bracha aloud and only that congregant would know of the chazzan's plight.

Just for the record: Bi'ur = ביעור = destroy, while Bei'ur = ביאור = explicate.
